berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2010
Cask at the Baron Cadogan (JDW), Caversham. Reddish copper with a thin beige head; the aroma has some resinous hops; not as thin as expecting with some nively roasted toffee malts and some grapefruit bitterness.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2010
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford, in ’Spoons Beer Festival ’10. Dark brown. What is that aroma? If not coriander, it’s something I associate with cooking a curry. Taste adds some slightly soapy leaves. Mid bitter finish. To be honest I found this a bit grim and dreary.

26th October 2010.
Spoons Fest! Clear dark brown beer with a big creamy tan head. Low carbonation softish palate, a little dry. Mild dark malt with a little cream. An undertone of very mild smoke. Some sweet fruit makes a brief appearance before quickly turning alarmingly bitter through the semi dry finish. A bitter aftertaste that lingered for a good 20 mins. Not bad but I don’t understand why so many hold this in high regard. The malt side is pleasant but the hop side is way too aggressive. Not sure it is in Brewdogs nature to brew a Mild, like asking Wayne Rooney to take a pay cut!
